5 5  There are 2 types of support you can get:
6 +
6 6  * Community Support: If you're technically-savvy and can formulate your questions in term of general needs and don't need guaranteed response time, this is a good option. The support is done the community in everyone's free time. You should also consider helping others since this works on a give-give basis.
7 7  * Professional Support: If you want someone to fully take care of your problem and provide a solution tailored to your context, with a a guaranteed time frame, then this is the option you should pick.

29 29  The XWiki Core Dev Team officially supports 3 versions:
31 +
30 30  * The latest stable version from the last [[XWiki Cycle>>dev:Community.VersioningAndReleasePractices]] (e.g. 5.4.5). This is the most stable version and is what we recommend to use in production. We also call it the LTS version.
31 31  * The latest stable version from the current XWiki Cycle (e.g. 6.0). This is the version recommended if you wish to try out the new features from the current Cycle. It's possible to use those in production but you have to understand that it contains relatively recent new features that haven't been through a long stabilization process so their stability may vary. As the Cycle progresses the stability increases too.
32 32  * The latest development version from the current XWiki Cycle (e.g. 6.1-milestone-1). This is the version to use if you want to test the really latest feature and provide feedback to the XWiki development team and help us stabilize the version.
33 33  
34 34  The rationale for supporting only 3 versions is:
37 +
35 35  * We don't want to over-burden the developers to have to support more than 3 development branches, it's already a lot. Each branch slows down the overall XWiki development.
36 36  * This is open source software and free and we consider free users can contribute back by helping us test the newest versions by upgrading. If they want support for their older version in production they have the possibility to ask companies for [[professional support>>#HProfessionalSupport]].
37 37  
38 38  As a consequence:
42 +
39 39  * You won't find documentation for old versions on this web site
40 40  * You won't find maintained source code for old versions (tagged source can be found but not maintained branches)
41 41  * People on the community lists may ask you to upgrade to a newer version when you discover an issue that is fixed in a newer version than the one you're using
